Subject: DOCBOOK: Simplifying info wrappers

DocBook currently has different info wrappers for metadata at (most)
different levels: ArticleInfo, BookInfo, ChapterInfo, Sect1Info, etc.

The original motivation for this scheme was to allow customizers to
change metadata on an element-by-element basis. An organization might
decide to simplify section-level metadata so that, for example, ISBN
numbers were not allowed.

Occasionally, users suggest that it would be simpler and better if
there was just one <info> element.

What do you think?

Has anyone out there ever actually customized the info wrappers so
that the were different in different contexts?
